Pokemon Go Adventures at Huntington Library and Gardens

Pokemon Go is a virtual reality game, on Pokemon of course, and I really recommend to play at Huntington Library not only because of the beautiful scenery, but because of the tons of Pokemon there. Recently I downloaded Pokemon Go mostly because of my cousin, who told me all about it. The next day I went to Huntington Library where we caught a bunch of Pokemon. It’s a great place to activate “Incense” to lure Pokemon. There is Pokemon everywhere, so running out of of PokeBalls may be of a situation so remember to go to PokeStops. We could not go everywhere due to the long walks so I recommend to visit mostly the two gardens, the Japanese Garden and the Chinese Garden.

This is a very basic tutorial on Pokemon Go!

PokeBalls – ball which to capture and hold PokeBall, has a limited amount, to get more visit a PokeStop.

PokeStop – an icon to represent a type of grand or even small memorial part of a place, this icon if near enough you can spin it and it gives off random items for use such as Pokemon Eggs, Revives, Incense, Potions, and PokeBalls.

Incense – an item used to attract Pokemon to you for 30 minutes.

Revives and Potions – used to heal fainted Pokemon to half it’s health and used to heal partial health.

Pokemon Eggs – are Pokemon Eggs gained from PokeStops or bought from the shop, and can hatch by walking a given amount of kilometers. The more kilometers needed to hatch the more rare the Pokemon.


  • Do not use Battery Saver
  • Try travel as far as possible
  • Hatch the most rarest eggs first
  • Do not spend real Money, keep it REAL!
  • Be aware of your surroundings or your Pokemon Adventure will end quickly
  • Try to not waste any PokeBalls
  • Look for Pokemon with strong attacks and high Combat Power(CP)
  • Try different regions for different types of Pokemon
  • To find a lot of Pokemon go to parks

Kid’s Blog: The Awesome Pinball Hall of Fame

The Pinball Hall of Fame is a great place to play pinball and arcade games in Las Vegas – View Map. There you will be able to play old, classic arcade games like Qbert, Mario Bros., and Ms. Pacman. You will also be able to play old and new pinball machines including Shrek, the Simpsons, and Family Guy.

If your parents are wondering if there is an admission fee, then tell them there is NO fee! However, you will need money to play. The amount of money that I would recommend you should bring is around $20 for a family of 4. My mom, sister, and I got $20 in quarters and had $5 leftover after playing for over an hour before it closed. We played the games together as a family and competed against each other.

When you get to the Pinball Hall of Fame arcade, you should first change your bills for quarters. You will then want to look for games that are good to play with your family. First of all, I would recommend looking for good pinball deals like 50 cents for 5 balls. Also, some pinball machines have extra value deals like $1.50 or $2 for 3 credits. These machines aren’t cheap and are a good deal.

There are also classic arcade games like Qbert, Ms. Pacman, Asteroids, etc. for only 25₵. We tried Qbert and Ms. Pacman which was difficult but extremely fun. My mom did the best. I also played air hockey against my mom and sister and beat them both! The best pinball machine that I would recommend for you and your family to play is The Simpsons and Family Guy.

For the most fun, I would recommend coming to the Pinball Hall of Fame in the evening with your family. It is great for all ages and especially, if you make a friendly competition among you and your family members. It is a terrific way to bond and make memories.
